By Jesse Reed

Former NFL running back Ahman Green has been arrested in Wisconsin for suspicion of child abuse.

“The Brown County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged Green was arrested at his home about 11:30 p.m. Sunday over a family matter, but it would not provide other details,” per the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Per the report, the District Attorney’s office is reviewing Green’s case for possible charges on Monday.

Originally a third-round pick out of Nebraska by the Seattle Seahawks in 1998, Green played for three NFL teams, most prominently with the Green Bay Packers, from 1998-2009. During his NFL career, he was named to the Pro Bowl four times and earned NFC Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2003.

Green is Green Bay’s all-time rushing leader and was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2014.
